Baltimore Ravens punter Sam Koch is having the best season of his career as he has been selected to the pro bowl for the first time ever. With his reward, Koch is spreading the glory as he gave his teammates Apple watches for their hard work. Koch believes his achievement would not have been attainable without the help of the people who guided him to where he is at the moment.
"That's on par with Sam," Ravens long-snapper Morgan Cox noted via ESPN.com. "I'm really proud of all the work he's put in. And obviously I'm thankful of him thinking of us and showing that he appreciates us."
Koch has really taken the punting game to a whole new level this season. He has begun to disguise his punts so that punt returners can be fooled. He would set his body in the direction of the right sidelines and but ultimately kick in the direction of the left sidelines. His new punting skills are almost like a basketball version of the no-look pass.
Koch on the season has a 43 yard net average to go along with 26 punts inside the 20 yard line. When the Ravens signed Koch to a five year, 16.25 million dollar extension, the Ravens were hoping to get a good return on investment. Koch has exceeded expectations- he may have to hold out for a new deal in the offseason.
